Ormskirk is a historic parish and market town. Its first settlers were probably the Vikings or Norsemen from Ireland and the Isle of Man who invaded and settled in the north-west of England in the ninth and tenth centuries. Among the Viking leaders was Orme who, according to legend, settled on the coast near the south of the River Ribble in the year 840 AD. Ormskirk is renowned for its surrounding cobbled alleyways of tiny shops. Many of Ormskirk's shops are laid out on the lines of the mediaeval plots of land. Alongside several of the shops are the archway entrances to the yards behind, these entrances were for horse-drawn wagons and the yards were once the trade centres for mediaeval craftsmen. The historic market was created by the grant of a royal market charter to the monks of Burscough Priory by Edward I in 1286. The Thursday and Saturday outdoor market provide about 150 stalls that offer every type of goods. The church of St Peter & St Paul is unusual having both a tower and a spire - both ancient - standing side by side. This feature is seen on only two other parish churches in England.
